Stay with the Problem, Last Night’s Speech, God’s Promise, Healthy Superbowl

Power Thoughts

  • “It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer.” ~ Albert Einstein
  • “Don’t be discouraged. It’s often the last key in the bunch that opens the lock. ” ~ Unknown
  • “Never give up on what you really want to do. The person with big dreams is more powerful than one with all the facts.” ~ Unknown

Did you watch it? The president’s state of the union address.  Based on what you have seen, what do you think is the best way to pray for our country?

God’s Promise: When my children were little … I noticed my five-year-old oldest son struggled to open a container with a tight lid. I asked him to bring the container to me so I could help him, however, he was determined to open it himself. He started to cry, as his frustration grew. Finally, he decided to allow me to help. He then saw how easy it was for me.

This is a spiritual lesson for me about how to handle difficult circumstances. Sometimes, rather than seeking God’s help, we try our own methods to solve our problems — and we often end up frustrated or in tears. But God’s promise is in front of us: Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. (Matthew 11:27-29) God has the solution to our problems: We can believe in and trust in God’s word — and ask for God’s help. ~ Yaneth Orozco Z.

A Healthy Super Bowl Sunday! It’s just around the corner:

  1. Order pizza without the cheese and ask for extra veggies.
  2. Use plain yogurt instead of sour cream to mix up the dip.
  3. Use microwave popcorn.
  4. Take a walk at halftime.
  5. Watch the game while running on your treadmill.
  6. Eat pretzels instead of chips.
  7. Make submarine sandwiches using mustard, low-fat cheese and lean deli meats like turkey breast while piling on veggies such as pepper strips, sprouts, tomatoes, mushrooms, onions, pickles, cucumbers and grated carrots.
  8. Order a fruit tray from your local grocer instead of a cheese tray.
  9. Put out cereal mix instead of mixed nuts.
  10. Skip the cheese and crackers and substitute pita wedges and hummus dip.
  11. Instead of chicken wings, make chicken fingers using skinless chicken breast strips. Dip into mustard, honey or barbecue sauce.
